figshare fest London
Fri 2 December 2016, 10:00 – 16:30 GMT
We invite you to join the 3rd figshare fest London!
figshare fest is a chance to gather together our institutional clients, advocates and friends to talk about everything figshare and open research.
This is not solely a vendor focused event, the programme will consist of a mix of talks from figshare customers as well as members of the research community talking about data publishing and broader research data management issues eg. researcher engagement, active data storage, data management plans and institutional RDM policy.
It will be useful for RDM policy makers, service providers and those simply wanting to know more about and be a part of the RDM community, including data managers, eResearch and research support leads, librarians, and IT managers with a focus on research.
